Why is Being a Cisco-certified CCIE So Important?
A CCIE (Cisco Certified Internet Expert) is a top-level infrastructure specialist who achieves this elite title by passing tough examinations supervised by Cisco.

Progentís CCIE-qualified professionals work freely with Cisco's internal staff in analyzing problems with Cisco IOS software and developing temporary alternatives or finding software updates to resolve problems. The vast majority of CCIEs are employed by large enterprises or national ISPs, and so their services are not easily available to small businesses.

Progentís CCIE experts work intimately with Cisco engineers in identifying problems with Cisco's IOS software and devising workarounds or acquiring patches to resolve problems.
